[DETAILED STATS]

 Appearance:
    Standing at 5'6 with a lithe femenine frame, lmLeah isn't the image anyone would have of a sailor, least of all a SWCC. Her figure is that of a model, evident of her lifestyle before the Navy with her small role of entertainment on the civilian side. Many of her features are doll like with subtle hints of a sultry demeanor.

 Personality:
   Fiercely loyal and extremely confident Leah is known as one of those "go-to" people. At her core she is what many would believe to be a good person. She cares deeply for those around her, and makes it a point to protect her teammates. However she sometimes has trouble opening up, being more of an action girl than words. Of course this leads to awkward moments, and many tend to see her as a loner.

[ b]Hobbies/Interests:[/b]
ameture mechanic, modeling, singing, dancing

 Field/Work Experience:   

2x deployments to Asia
1x deployment to middle east
1x deployment to South America

   
 Personal History:
    Born in Boulder Colorado to two extremely proud parents Leah had grown up to be a bright young girl. She excelled in math, however leaned more toward History as her favorite subject... or rather social studies as she progressed through elementary and middle school. Half way through her second year of middle school the Kim-Sook family moved to Washington DC where Leah had trouble adjusting to the new school.

Making friends wasn't easy right off the bat. She was more of a loner, keeping her focus on her studies than trying to make friend. Her parents often felt worried about their daughter thinking she would become a little recluse. But as time went on she opened up, making friends surely enough. High school was probably the peak of her social career as a teen. Having become fairly popular in terms of knowing damn near everyone and joining water polo, swim team, and track.

On top of that her grades were quite well off. She averaged with a 3.4 GPA. Gaining a number of scholarships and being accepted into NYU where she spent a little over two years before enlisting into the United States Navy. Basic was... cold as far as she could remember. Often being out from 4am running through ankle high ice cold water, or jogging through trails. She had always hated the cold despite being raised in it. For that reason some of the other recruits had started calling her Eskimo at one point.

After a horrid six week process Leah found herself looking to join the SWCC teams. Maybe someday even the SEAL's. The graduation was nice. Her family got to see her in person and in uniform for the first time. She could still remember her first day back home. Her father had her wear her uniform while they went around the neighborhood showing off their daughter.

Some time later she put in for the SWCC course finding it extremely challenging off the bat. She passed initial screening but it was the BCT and CQT that almost had her scrubbed. She had barely moved through with the proper reqs to continue but had indeed made it. Following CQT she moved on to get her primary jump wings.

After earning her Crewmen badge she was assigned to Team 20 after a nice spit of leave which she used to her advantage to catch up on eating real food, sleeping and enjoying some good company. Her holding onto any serious relationship was a problem. It was simply impossible for her. As a result there was no boyfriend, least of all a lover for her to confide in when she returned...not in the way she truly wanted to. There was only so much she could reveal to her parents but none of which comforted her. She was scared.

Being a Naval asset Leah was forced to get over it quickly, team 20 was called in on several front. Usually one tour had them jumping from hotspot to hotspot. Usually playing support roles for generic SEAL teams, or DevGru depending on the missions she learned to run with them and their Army/Marine counterparts. Her focus was her career and soon enough her civilian life was something she completely suppressed, nor thought about while she was in action. She became all soldier learning the ins and outs, some would say she knew the workings of a craft more than the human body. Funny considering she was trained as a medic. She had a natural knack for VBSS or boarding operations. Usually leading small teams when boarding a vessel.

She climbed in rank smoothly, earning achievements. However her smooth ride through the SWCC crews was jolted to a halt during a snatch and grab mission. Her crew was working with an SFOD-D team to board a vessel and grab an HVI. The rest were just collateral. Searching the ship turned to a pain real quick. The ship was a tanker the deck was nothing but thick black smoke, visibility was zero out to two feet. She had to keep her people together as they moved for the hatch to the interior. Once inside the firefights were insane. G3's and AK series weapons opened up damn near as soon as her boot settled on the iron shod floor. Forcing her into the cover of a crew quarters. Unknown to her it was occupied and she struggled in a hand to hand fight with a bigger opponent. But he was slower. She stomped on his foot, driving her right knee into his crotch whole her elbow went to his throat, left hand knocking his fist past her. He staggered back and she pulled out her sidearm putting him down for good. As she collected herself she noticed the fire had died down and she looked down the corridor to see her team and two of the seals policing the corridor and setting up their point of entry.

Her NCOIC was a SCPO who took her a PO3 and one of the Delta boys with them. A sniper from the looks of it. He was carrying a marksmen rifle. They moved to the bridge, taking it over quickly. With word of the QRF closing in to help the joint-force was ordered to secure the lower decks and sweep it for explosives. Doing so resulted in insane firefights with a mass of scared and angry insurgents. The Delta Corporal linked up with a First Sergeant on the bridge and they provided over watch keeping the deck clear. There seemed to be stragglers hiding through the field of crates.

The Delta leader moved with the three SWCC members including Leah and her team leader. During one of the fire fights where they were pinned down one of her crewmen got hit and went down. She couldn't. Get to him, and he was struggling to crawl into cover. Getting a door open and falling down what she figured was a flight of stairs. She wanted to go get him but the SCPO ordered her not to instead moving back while they suppressed the defenders. She wanted to take a step back and look at the bigger picture. The Petty Officer wasn't having that. She disobeyed his order and went after her injured comrade. Her radio cracked as she ran down the stairs following the trail of blood to her unconscious crewmember.

Apparently one of the delta's had discovered explosives. They seemed to be on a timer. She hauled the man up to his knees and shook him awake. Stripping his gear and getting his mass over her shoulders. Both having dropped everything but their weapons. It was the easiest way to get him up the stairs. However that route was blocked due to fire. Seemed the flames and various explosions through the ship were making escape difficult. Leah was glad that she was able to seal her wounds. They were moving quite a bit. Her movement pattern had them moving to the other hatch near the bridge. She made contact with the Delta Marksmen on the bridge. They were getting ready for exfil but she couldn't carry the guy all the way on her own. Within a matter of seconds the army operative, ghastly visage and all was helping her with her teammate as the ship shook with explosions, getting back to the boats was a relief...at least she figured. Her Chief was in her face instantly.

The Delta boys kept to themselves, offering no more than a nod in her direction. She didn't understand why she had to get beasted out for doing the right thing. She snapped. Hauling her fist into the man's face, delivering another, followed by a third before she was pulled away. The end result was her standing before a court-martial. The case was reviewed. And her assault was pushed down to a battery, however her pay grade took two hits down. She reverted back to a PO3 equivalent. And the whole incident put a bit of a stall on her hopes to join the Seals. As a result when the billet came around Leah wanted a new start. Upon reassignment to another boat team with a different AO. Given her technical background it was a good move. Allowed her to flex her 'head' muscle as well as provide a more assigned sense of security instead of having to task other teams to do so. Effectively increasing the Boat Team's ability. The team would soon grow as other new arrivals filtered into the teams roster. In time her record recovered and her work ethic showed her worth within the boat teams.

Only hang up I have with this is the application picture. Can we change it to something that fits the board a bit better? I understand if that's not possible with this play-by. I did a quick Google search and since she's a musician it's hella hard, haha.
